The Deputy Leader of the Dominica Labour Party (DLP) Ambrose George is not content with a court decision to keep United Workers Party (UWP) official Dave Bruney on the Integrity in Public Office Commission (IPO) for now.
The DLP has been objecting to Bruney’s nomination to the Integrity Commission and took the matter to court. The DLP says Bruney’s close affiliations with the UWP and his attack on Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit make him unfit to serve on the commission.
High Court Judge Justice Brian Cottle on Monday granted leave for review of the matter, but did not order any change in Bruney’s appointment while the court reviews whether or not the UWP affiliate is fit for serving on the IPO.
But George said the decision is unacceptable. He is concerned Bruney has access to “private information relating to the Integrity Commission”.
“By not granting an injunction, what in fact we have before us, is a situation where Mr. Bruney now has full access to all private information as far as the Integrity Commission is concerned. One also has to consider the fact that you cannot determine how long this judicial review may take,” George lamented adding that the DLP may have to consider further action on the matter.
